this model with these features will wake up palm sales after long sleep
Why does it say Coming soon? It's almost July and it has been available for quite a while now
im using treo650 since 2004.its the best phone.i havnt upgraded because ive not found any troble since last 5 years. only drawback is the weight and that would be the only reason i would switch to a newer verson. i just wanna confirm that Pre does have office application with editor.thats all . if somebody could confirm i'd be grateful. thank you
im sure if anyone has the pre that they know by now that it can be synced with itunes therefore giving u the full user ability as the iphone for those of u chasing it. if u r thinking of getting the pre this may persuade u too. i have the pre, HD, and waiting for my new iphone 3gs to arrive so im not a fanboy of any just love phones and technology.
isnt it cool that the palm pre can sync with itunes so if u dont have an iphone just an ipod u now have the iphone with the pres ability to sync ur music from itunes. thumbs up pre team previously at apple
It has a 3.5 music jack and all but how come they have left out FM stereo.
The eyecandy design of the OS is quite nice, but IPhone is still the best in that area, I love the keypad, but i hoped that they slide the keypad a bit as it is a terrible idea jamming your fingers on the top keys of the keyboard (even small fingers will have difficulty of pressing those).
Thetering would be a nice idea, though we rarely use it. I rather take the sim and transfer it to USB 3g Dongle. Thetering is bad for batteries. (I do that with my Omnia)
Palm and Apple make their phones too limited and locked... just compare with N97 or Omnia HD!
Why is this phone being touted as the next iPhone rival? Is it even a music phone? What about the Tosh TG01? Now there's a foneputer
Yeah, it's missing a few features that would be nice, but I have to say...
Synergy > ALL!!!!
This is my favorite phone I have ever owned. Very sleek, syncs with everything. Wow. I am completely over my iPhone envy now that I have a Pre
i dont see any diference betwen this phone and new iphone. iphone has biger and better display and there are lot of applications and i forgot that the neq iphone has video recording nat 30 fps which its not bad
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2009I looked at this phone as I was a keen Palm user in the late 90's/early 2000's. Love the webOS... moreTypical operators spoiling the device again,,if their not letting you get hold of firmware updates the messing with operating software when putting all there jargon on it ie logos,,own wallpapers,,disabling this feature ,,messing with that feature..How are devices supposed to reach their full potential and what they are designed for when operators ruin the lot..That goes for all makes of fone and all i.p. providers...Boo
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2009Status Coming soon.. whats going on there.. this phone is available ;) everybodys says "ip... moreActually, I heard it's more of a competitor with the Blackberry than the Iphone...
Yep, small screen, low resolution and not the best keyboard when I demoed a unit...that is when the eager 'presenter' let me hold it for the authorised 20seconds lest show-goers should not be wowed or find something that doesn't work with a free-demo. The Palm people were very intrusive and would not let anyone discover the device. The multi-tasking is ok, as is the underlying architecture....but this has been overhyped more than the iphone or android G1. Ultimately it's a phone with some PDA abilities, not a PDAphone.
You probably can't even record a phone conversation with this overpriced device, or use it as an answering machine. Such simple functionality seems to have been left out intentionally so you can pay for an overpriced voicemail service.
prowling eyes, 12 Jun 2009the phone has a microSD card slot. read the details of the phone before posting.phone does not have a microsd and for now the palm store is very limited. all applications say "try me" indicating that there are no free applications. But thats Sprint for you.
